Founded in 2014
Part farm, part classroom, part research and development center. One of my greatest privileges since Your Farms Your Table began was crossing paths with Bernard Singleton and learning about his story. Starting with a few seeds and a planter several years ago, to Bennu Gardens near uptown, to his 11 acre space in Indian land. Growing fruits, plants and rice from his homeland and offering a significant voice to our community that for the most part hasn’t been heard in some time.
